E. Nannei53 employed r1=o.1 — a0x, r2 = a2—r1x,. . . (:c<10). Then, if rn=0, N = lQnan+ . • .+10a!+a0is divisible by lOz+1 and the quotient has the digits rn_l3 rn_2, . . . , r1; a0. The cases x = 1, 2 are discussed and several tests for 7 deduced. For a; = 1/3, we conclude that, if rn=0, N is divisible by 13 and the digits of the quotient are rn_!/3, . . . , ^/S, a0/3.
A. Chiari54 employed D'Alembert's5 method for 10+&, 6 = 3, 7, 9.
G. Bruzzone55 noted that, to find the remainder R when N is divided by an integer x of r digits, we may choose y such that x+y^W, form the groups of r digits counting from the right of N, and multiply the successive groups (from the right) by 1, y, y2, . . . or by their residues modulo x] then R equals the remainder on dividing the sum of the products by x. If we choose x — y = 10r, we must change alternate signs before adding. For practical use,
Fr. Schuh56 gave three methods to determine the residue of large numbers for a given modulus.
Stuyvaert57 let a, 6, ... be the successive sets of n digits of TV to the base 5, so that N = a+bBn+cB2n+ .... Then N is divisible by a factor D of Bn =?Rn if and only if a*=bRn+cR2n± ... is divisible by D. For E = l, £ = 10, n = l, 2, . . ., we obtain tests for divisors of 9, 99, 11, 101, etc. A divisor, prime to B, of mB+l divides N — a-\-bB if and only if it divides b — ma.
